Rosewill RNX-N150UBEv2, Wireless N150 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE802.11b/g/n, Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates, USB2.0 Interface, 1 x 2dBi Detachable High Gain Antennas, Win 8.1 Support

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Sturdy construction, replaceable antenna, and works for ordinary use.

Cons: The current Linux driver does not support "master" or "monitor" modes. This means you can't use this to set up a homebrew wireless AP or a wireless IDS.

The adapter is larger than the USB standard permits: it will obstruct any horizontally or vertically adjacent ports. If space is an issue, you'll need to plug it in via a USB extension cord.

Other Thoughts: This uses the RTL8188SU chip. The Linux driver (as of kernel 3.18) is the "r8712u" driver in the staging tree.

ENERMAX T.B. Silence UCTB12P 120mm PWM Function Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: At half speed (50% PWM), it moves a respectable amount of air and is nearly silent. There's a faint whine, but with my case, it's only audible if I place my ear right next to the air intake.

Cons: At full speed (100% PWM), it isn't silent, or even close to it. Almost all of the noise is the whoosh of moving air: I couldn't identify any motor whine or other annoying sounds.

Other Thoughts: The PWM support lets you pick what you want: move a moderate amount of air silently, or an enormous amount of air noisily.

WD Red 3TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD30EFRX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: When it works, it works well. When I added one of these drives to my storage array to replace a failed drive, I got a faster rebuild speed than with any other disk.

Cons: When it fails, it fails horribly. The second drive added to the array caused the controller card to lock up, requiring a reboot to fix.
